Your place in Southern California for repair, questions and information about your slot machine!
Most slot repair people will merely write a simple invoice with the innocuous phrase hastily penned in a corner margin of the invoice: "serviced as needed." We do not. We will leave you with an extensive and thoroughly-written repair history for your slot machine(s). You will know exactly what work was performed. Your machine will be assessed completely to OUR satisfaction. We repair it to OUR STANDARDS, not yours. Click on the these links to see our individual repair/maintenance approach for your slot machine.
We bring the same professionalism to house calls made in and around the Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the Delaware areas. The same TLC given to slot machines in California and Nevada exists on the other side of the country. Please call us for more details.
Any items for repair left at our facilities will be sold after sixty (60) days without notice. The owner must claim repaired items in a timely manner.

Their workshop has been declared an historical landmark by South Pasadena's Cultural Heritage Commission.)
Provenance: held by a private collector. Condition: overall in good condition. Functions with no mechanical issues. Flying arrow mechanism is properly functioning. 120-volt AC wiring is correctly connected and safely grounded to metal housing. An ON/OFF metal toggle switch is accessible in the back of the display.
